The "Mission Statement for the Town of Wilmington" is as follows: 

"The Town of Wilmington, as a municipal corporation, exists in order to 
deliver a wide range of municipal services to those who live, work or 
own property within the borders of Wilmington; and in order to make this 
community a good place to live, to work, and to raise and educate a 
family, those services must be responsive to the needs of the people. 
They must be effective and efficient. Principles of honesty, fairness, 
dependability and compassion must govern the actions of the officials 
and the employees of the Town. Those who work for the Town as employees 
or as members of boards, committees and commissions are recognized as 
its most important resource and the key to its success in serving the 
people of Wilmington." 

Endorsed by the Board of Selectmen May 22, 1989.

BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

The year ending December 31, 1991 has been a tremendous year for global change. The 
Persian Gulf War ended in short order. The men and women who served their country 
in that conflict were given a well deserved heroes' welcome both nationally and here 
in Wilmington. The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), once our greatest 
military threat, has collapsed into a confederation with an uncertain future. 

Locally, the challenges are perhaps less daunting but certainly no less important to 
the people who are affected. 

The Town continues to be impacted by the economic downturn which has affected the 
region and the country. A weak economy has resulted in fewer dollars in local aid 
from the State, fewer dollars being received through local excise tax bills and an 
increase in requests for property tax abatements. The net result has been a 
combined school/general government budget increase of less than 1% from fiscal year 
1991 to fiscal year 1992. 

Despite nearly a level funded budget, the Town has been able to meet the challenge 
and move in a positive direction. Town government is aggressively pursuing ways to 
maintain a high quality of life with fewer public dollars. Many of this year's 
achievements demonstrate that approach. 

Renovations to the Barrows Auditorium were completed this year without dollars being 
appropriated in the fiscal year 1991 budget. Instead, due to a favorable bidding 
climate and careful project management, the sum of $136,101 was saved on the High 
School boiler installation contract, and transferred for auditorium renovations. 
Over $28,000 was raised through local fund raising efforts and earmarked for 
renovations. Staff from the Public Building Department completed much of the work. 
All these efforts combined to achieve what appeared impossible just a couple of 
years ago. 

Parents of children attending the Woburn Street School raised over $23,000 to buy 
materials to construct the "Fun Zone" playground at the Woburn Street School. 
Construction was completed by personnel from the Public Works Department. The play 
area is accessible to individuals with disabilities. 

Negotiations were concluded with Spaulding and Slye, developers of RiverPark 93 
located on Concord Street, for installation of traffic signals at the intersection 
of Concord Street and Woburn Street. The developer will hire the contractor and pay 
for signalization all according to State Department of Public Works' specifications. 
This new set of traffic lights improve safety at that intersection at no cost to the 
Town. The installation is expected to be completed in 1993. 

Local industries in the Andover Street/Route 12 5 area donated over $23,000 to be 
used for design of expanded travel lanes at the intersection and design of traffic 
signals. Once the project design is complete the State DPW will be responsible for 
construction. This project is expected to be completed by the end of 1992. 

The Town applied for $700,000 in Community Development Block Grant money from the 
State Executive Office of Communities and Development (EOCD) . The grant application 
sought to address a wide range of local needs including housing acc[uisition, housing 
rehabilitation, recreation and employment assistance. While our application was 
very competitive, Wilmington did not receive funding. Despite this setback, 
community support for this program as demonstrated by requests for information and 
the attendance at public hearings was significant. Certainly the needs identified 
in this grant application persist. We are confident that future efforts will be 
successful.

In December the Town Center, which includes property extending from the Wildwood 
Cemetery south along Middlesex Avenue to the Town Common, received designation as a 
National Historic District. This accomplishment is a result of the persistence and 
determination of the Wilmington Historical Commission. 

Hurricane Bob hit in August with heavy rain and high winds. Thanks to the 
dedication of personnel from the Public Works Department, Public Buildings 
Department, Police Department, Fire Department and Emergency Management Department, 
roads were kept open. Town property protected and public safety was maintained. 
Based upon the Town's application for disaster relief funds, the Town will be 
receiving over $70,000 from the State and Federal Government to cover storm related 
costs. 

As state and local revenues have continued in the doldrums. Town employees have been 
called upon to sacrifice. The Town was faced with the alternatives of agreeing to 
salary increases and loss of personnel or eliminating salary increases and 
preserving personnel. We are pleased to report that all general government 
employees agreed to work with no cost of living increase for fiscal year 1992. 
While the Town general government departments lost 19 full and part-time positions 
this past year, these reductions were completed through attrition and not lay-offs. 

Once again the Recycling Advisory Committee and the volunteers who staff the 
Saturday drop-off deserve our compliments. Through their volunteer efforts the Town 
has removed over 750 tons of materials from the waste stream. 

As always we wish to extend our thanks to the unheralded efforts of the Town 
employees. While their efforts may be unsung, they are continuing the charge to 
satisfy the expectations of residents for quality service with fewer resources. 

While times are certainly more difficult today than they have been in recent memory, 
there is a silver lining. Today, more than ever before, residents are giving of 
themselves in the name of community. And that willingness to give, to lend a hand 
for the good of the Town will help maintai 
current adversity.

OFFICEOFTHE 33„ 
TOWN MANAGER 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington: 



The year 1991 was a year in which the people of Wilmington were challenged to 
do more with less. Families, businesses and community organizations struggled 
to cope with an economic recession that, in many instances, threatened their 
very existence. Town government faced a similar challenge. Dwindling 
resources prompted a continued re-examination of Town services. In fact, it 
was not until December of this past year that voters adopted a final fiscal 
year 1992 budget which downsized local government, reflected operational 
efficiencies and task consolidations, included a teacher summer pay deferral 
plan, and recognized a dramatic decrease in local receipts and State aid. 

Despite increasing financial constraints, the Town did not retreat from its 
commitment to provide quality services to the citizens of Wilmington. More 
importantly however, Wilmington citizens did not retreat from their sense of 
service to the Town. A spirit of partnership enveloped the community in 1991. 
Businesses and organizations joined with civic-minded residents to ensure the 
success of numerous Town initiatives. No single project more exemplified this 
cooperative spirit than the renovation of the Barrows Auditorium. The 
renovation project was just one of a wide range of initiatives embraced by 
townspeople at April's annual town meeting. Residents voted to transfer 
$136,000 in available funds from the high school heating system account and 
committed to raising the balance of funds through a variety of fundraising 
efforts. The result was that on December 5, 1991, through the countless 
efforts of many dedicated volunteers and the willingness of taxpayers to fund 
a worthy project, Wilmington possessed a first class cultural center promising 
years of enjoyment for future generations of Wilmington citizens. Moreover, 
the project was completed substantially under budget and for some $300,000 
less than originally estimated. 

Town meeting voters adopted a quarterly tax billing program which has enabled 
the Town to improve its cash flow and to restrict its short-term borrowing. 
Town meeting also established a capital improvement stabilization fund and 
accepted my recommendation to earmark revenues generated from future sales of 
town-owned land to this fund. The Town also adopted a by-law governing the 
sale of town-owned land which guaranteed that only property surplus to the 
needs of the Town could be sold and then only through an open and competitive 
bid process requiring that the purchaser pay at least the appraised value for 
the property's highest and best use. A Property Review Board was established 
to determine a best use determination for all town property. 

On a near unanimous vote, residents approved a $7,000,000 bond authorization 
to construct the Northeast Interceptor Sewer Project. Financing the project 
however, became problematic. Many residents expressed concern over their 



-4- 



ability to fund such a project by betterments and questions were raised as to 
the route of the proposed sewer and its environmental impact on wetlands. A 
series of informational meetings were held culminating with the December 16th 
Special Town Meeting wherein a decision was reached to rescind authorization 
for the project. Realizing the importance of sewerage, but recognizing the 
economic plight of its residents, voters approved the Board of Selectmen's 
proposal to establish a Sewer Financing Advisory Board. It is expected that 
this committee will recommend alternative methods for funding future sewer 
projects. 

Town Meeting approved the purchase of handicapped chair lifts for the West 
Intermediate School thus establishing handicapped accessibility for all grade 
levels. The Handicapped Affairs Committee was renamed the Commission on 
Disabilities. Voters approved a reorganization plan which established a 
townwide Elderly Services Commission to replace the Council on Aging. This 
streamlined commission assumed policy making responsibilities while Department 
Head status was vested in a Director for Elderly Services. Edith Cunninghaun, 
longtime Senior Citizens Coordinator, was appointed Director. This change 
brings senior citizen services into the mainstream of town government by 
giving vital senior prograims departmental status. 

Town officials successfully negotiated a plan with the developers of the 
RiverPark 93 project to fund, at no cost to the Town, road improvements and 
traffic signalization for the intersection of Woburn and Concord Streets. The 
government/business partnership is also evidenced by Wilmington's Andover 
Street businesses who helped fund the design and engineering costs for the 
roadway improvements and traffic signalization project at the intersection of 
Route 125 and Andover Street. State officials have promised a 1992 completion 
date for this important project. Local DPW forces completed significant 
roadway improvements on Aldrich Road, Woburn Street and Tracy Circle. State 
forces repaired the Butters Row bridge and are reviewing transportation 
improvement plans with Town officials for the Route 129 interchange, the Route 
125/Ballardvale Street interchange, improvements to the Route 38 corridor and 
the Route 62 bridge replacement and intersection project. 

Hurricane Bob tested the emergency preparedness of Wilmington's municipal 
forces. Without a doubt. Town departments passed the test with flying colors. 
Personnel from the Police, Fire, DPW, Public Buildings and other departments 
joined forces to combat a difficult storm while ensuring the safety and well- 
being of Wilmington's residents. A swift and thorough clean-up made 
Wilmington the envy of surrounding communities. 

The spirit of partnership is evident by Town government's willingness to join 
with locally organized efforts to meet community needs. The Town assisted in 
the construction of the Woburn Street Playground and participated in the 
Soccer Building project at the Shawsheen School. The Town is committed, 
through a cooperative effort, to construct a walking trail at Rotary Park and 
stands ready to join all civic-minded groups interested in joint projects for 
the public good. 

Many other accomplishments and noteworthy events have occurred over the past 
year. The Town accepted as a gift the historic Scalekeeper ' s House, 
relocating it adjacent to the old burial grounds and restoring it for future 
generations to enjoy and remember. The Wilmington Housing Partnership was 
formally redesignated and has redoubled its efforts to increase Wilmington's 
affordable housing stock. Wilmington witnessed its lowest motor vehicle 
traffic accident rate since 1976. The Town's Water Department received 
Statewide recognition for its water supply practice and the Department of 
Public Works/Recycling efforts continue to enhance the environment while 



-5- 



saving taxpayer dollars. The financial crunch has not deterred Department 
Heads and employees from providing c[uality service. Instead, it has 
encouraged creativity and innovation which often translates to service and 
savings. 

Municipal employees are to be especially commended for their willingness to 
sacrifice pay raises. Their action saved jobs and ensured the continuation of 
many vital municipal programs. At the close of 1991, Priscilla (Patti) Ward 
attended her last Town Meeting as Wilmington's Town Clerk, a position she held 
with distinction since 1977. The Town wishes Patti many years of health and 
happiness in her retirement. Longtime Assistant Town Clerk, Kathleen Scanlon 
will prove to be an able replacement. 

Several longtime employees retired in 1991 including Firefighter Gerald 
Duggan, Public Buildings Foreman Joseph Suhanovsky, DPW Equipment Operator 
Edward Rybicki, Patrolman Alfred Venuti and veteran Police Sergeant and 
Department Prosecutor Donald Mercier. Each of these individuals served the 
Town with dedication and distinction. 

Although plans for 1992 call for more economies of scale and emphasize 
consolidation of effort, Wilmington Town government remains committed to 
providing its residents with a responsive, dependable, compassionate and 
efficient government. It is possible to meet that ambitious goal because 
Wilmington is enriched by those who have taken the time to serve. Town 
officials, employees, volunteers, business and community leaders and residents 
are commended for their willingness to take part. Success is often measured 
by a willingness to change. It has been written that "The most effective way 
to cope with change is to help create it". I am confident that Wilmington's 
government of partnership is ready and able to work for constructive change in 
the years ahead.

Permanent Building Committee 



During 1991 the Permanent Building Committee held monthly meetings to complete 
the final phase of the High School renovation; nsunely, the renovation of the 
Barrows Auditorium. At the 1991 Annual Town Meeting, $136,000 was transferred 
from the unexpended funds of the boiler renovation account for the auditorium 
project. The low bidder was L.J.H. Contractors Inc., Walpole, MA. The final 
construction cost was $160,583. 

The additional funds needed for the renovation were raised through private 
donations from businesses and citizens in Town. Ms. Lorraine Kalil, Director 
of Performing and Fine Arts successfully spearheaded this fundraising event, 
which raised over $29,000 in donations. 

This project could not have been completed without the assistance of the 
Public Buildings Department. Painting, carpentry and miscellaneous 
construction work was completed by this fine staff. 

On December 5th, "First Night", the grand re-opening of the Barrows Auditorium 
was held. A concert followed the ceremonies. A special thanks is extended to 
all who donated their time and efforts to bring this project to fruition. 

Since 1985, over $9 million dollars has been invested in the renovation of 
Wilmington High School, of which $5.4 million was received from State Aid and 
grants.

As required by law, inspections of all schools, public buildings, and all 
flanunable storage were made by Deputy Chief Daniel R. Stewart and Lieutenant 
Joseph McMahon. 

The following personnel changes were made: Retired Firefighter Gerald Duggan. 
A special thanks to F.F. Duggan for 20 years of faithful and dedicated service 
to the Town of Wilmington. 

The Fire Alarm division, under the direction of Lieutenant Paul Welch, 
inspected and tested all boxes. All necessary repairs were made to the system 
that saw heavy damage in 1991. There were 28 changeovers, three street boxes 
were dcimaged by vandalism, two more were struck by motor vehicles. Of the six 
circuits operated by the Municipal Fire Alarm system, five of these were 
knocked out of service by Hurricane Bob. Repairs were also made after the no 
neime storm of October 30. Two street boxes were installed at new locations. 
Approximately 3,000' of rual "C" wire was installed. Five new master boxes 
were added. 

I wish to extend my thanks to the staff and members of the Wilmington Fire 
Department for their support, loyalty and dedication to duty during 1991. 



Police Department 



In accordance with the By-Laws of the Town of Wilmington, I hereby respectfully 
submit the annual report on the activities of the Wilmington Police Department 
for the year of 1991. 

The enclosed statistical report represents the total for all crimes, complaints 
and incidents reported during the year 1991; and, for the most part the 
corresponding enforcement efforts of the Wilmington Police Department. During 
1991, the total number of complaints and incidents reported to the Police 
Department decreased by 8% from 12,330 incidents in 1990 to 11,323 during 1991. 
For the most part, the decreases were spread throughout the various crime 
categories and service related incidents. A number of the serious crime 
categories decreased significantly during 1991. Breaking and entering into homes 
and buildings decreased by 23% from 129 incidents in 1990 to 99 during 1991. 
Armed robberies were unchanged, with 6 incidents in both 1990 and 1991. Totals 
for assaults and batteries decreased by 23% from 95 in 1990 to 73 in 1991. Motor 
vehicles stolen in Wilmington decreased by 12% from 76 in 1990 to 67 in 1991. 

Motor vehicle accidents and traffic congestion continue to be a serious community 
concern; however, during 1991 the Police Department experienced a 17% decrease 
in the motor vehicle accident rate. During 1991, motor vehicle accidents 
decreased by 129 accidents, from 736 accidents in 1990 to 597 during 1991. 
Again, this is the lowest accident rate since 1976 when Wilmington experienced 
536 accidents. 

The enforcement of motor vehicle violations continued to be a major concern for 
the Police Department during 1991. During 1991, the Department cited 3,325 motor 
vehicle violations, this represents a decrease of 41% from the violations cited 
during 1990. The following are totals for some of the major areas of concern: 
speeding violations 1,642; operators license violation 262; unregistered and 
uninsured 149; and, miscellaneous violations 1,061. Arrests for operating a 
motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol were decreased by 19 from 80 in 1990 
to 61 during 1991. 

Arrests for crimes other than motor vehicle offenses during 1991 totaled 675. 
During 1991, the Police Department continued to place a high priority on alcohol 
and drug related offenses. As a result, arrest for liquor law violations totaled 
237 and there was a total of 25 narcotics arrests during 1991. In addition to 
motor vehicle and other criminal arrests, the Department placed a total of 192 
persons under protective custody. A total of 1,047 persons were taken into 
custody by the Police Department during 1991. As a result of the enforcement 
efforts of the department, the fine monies returned to the Town of Wilmington 
from the Woburn District Court during 1991 totaled $289,576. 

The Department makes note of personnel changes during 1991. During 1991, Sgt. 
Donald L. Mericer retired from the Police Department after 35 years of service. 
His expertise as a Police Officer and Prosecutor will be greatly missed. We all 
wish Donald health and happiness in his retirement. Officers McNally and 
Farnkoff resigned from the Police Department for other careers. We wish each of 
them success and happiness in their new employment. Officers William M. Jepson 
and J. Christopher Neville were promoted to the rank of Acting Sergeant during 
1991. Officers Alan Reece and John Bossi were appointed to the Department during 
1991. 

Considering the tremendous turnover in the Police Department's personnel during 
the past few years, the following Departmental Roster is being provided.

Emergency Management 



The Wilmington Emergency Management Agency (WEMA) is housed in the basement of 
the "Old Town Hall" at 219 Middlesex Avenue (opposite the Congregational 
Church), where we share a most cordial co-existence with the Wilmington 
Council of Arts. WEMA's goal, in fact its very existence, is geared to supply 
needed services to the citizens of Wilmington. These services cover a wide 
spectrum of needs from the furnishing of personnel and mobile units ec[uipped 
with radio, telephone, and packet (short-wave version of teletype), which have 
been utilized in the past to assist the annual walk-a-thon committee and 
provide assistance to the Police Department on Halloween, to providing limited 
supplies and shelter capabilities, as well as an underwater dive team for 
recovery work. 

The Agency continues to have a very active radio communications group under 
the supervision of Herb Nickerson. The base station for our agency is at the 
N.y.N.E.X. tower site located at the junction of Rte. 129 and Rte. 38. 
Wilmington is the net control for 19 communities, handling and relaying 
emergency communications between our sister communities and Area - 1 
Headquarters in Tewksbury. Wilmington has the distinction of being the back- 
up for Area - 1. In the event Area - 1 is unable to carry out their 
communications role, Wilmington will assume the function as emergency 
communications liaison between the 85 communities that comprise Area - 1 and 
the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency located in Frauningham. 

The dive team remains a viable element of our agency largely through the 
efforts of Bill Gable and Bob LaRivee. At present there are 4 fully equipped 
divers . 

Each year an attempt is made to form and equip a rescue team that would act as 
a much needed adjunct to town emergency personnel during a large scale 
operation and each year budget constraints make such an undertaking 
prohibitive. Perhaps next year will provide a more favorable economic climate 
to cultivate this most worthy venture. 

The Wilmington Emergency Management Agency extends its thanks and appreciation 
to all who have supported its growth and development, thank you for your many 
hours of volunteer work. Without it we could not function.

Planning Board 

During 1991 the Planning Board welcomed two new staff members and two new 
Board members. Lynn Goonin Duncan started in January as the Town's Planning 
Director. Linda Waterman was hired in October as the Planning Board's Senior 
Clerk, upon the resignation of Alma D 'Antonio. The Board would like to extend 
thanks to Alma D 'Antonio for her assistance over the past 2 1/2 years. Austin 
L. Rounds and Eric W. Judson filled the vacancies on the Board created by the 
expiration of the term of David J. Clark and the resignation of John R. 
Garrett. The Board wishes to express its appreciation to Dave Clark and John 
Garrett for their time, energy and dedication. 

Although new development activity was at a reduced level due to the economy, 
the Planning Board and Director expended significant effort resolving problems 
created by the sagging economy, including default by bonding companies and 
developers. 

The Planning Department also took a leadership role in other Town projects and 
activities, including the disposition of Town-owned land, the Massachusetts 
Small Cities Program grant application, Community Development Action Grant 
Program for water main improvements, Community Development team and affordable 
housing (see Housing Partnership report). 

SUBDIVISION CONTROL ; 

Under the authority vested in the Planning Board of the Town of Wilmington by 
Section 81-Q of Chapter 41 of the General Laws, the Board reviewed and took 
action on the following subdivision plans: 

o Carter Estates Revised Definitive Subdivision Plan for a six (6) lot 

residential subdivision was approved with conditions. 

o Ainsworth Road Definitive Subdivision Plan for a six (6) lot 

industrial subdivision was denied. 

o Patterson Estates Preliminary Subdivision Plan for a seven (7) lot 

residential subdivision was denied. 

o Treasure Hill Definitive Subdivision Plan was amended to contain 

twelve (12) residential lots. 



-24- 



o Meadow Lane Extension Preliminary Subdivision Plan for a three (3) 

lot residential subdivision was approved with conditions. 

Of the thirteen (13) plans believed not to recpaire approval that were 
submitted, the Planning Board determined that eleven (11) plans did not 
require approval under the Subdivision Control Law and therefore were 
endorsed; one plan required approval and therefore was denied for cause; and, 
one plan was endorsed by the Town Clerk. 

The Planning Board collected $600.00 in filing fees which were turned over to 
the General Fund Account.

Housing Partnership 

1991 was a busy year. The Housing Partnership was formally reorganized this 
year: members were appointed by the Town Manager and the board was 
redesignated by the State. With staff support from the Planning Director, the 
Partnership meets every second Thursday each month. The Partnership includes 
representatives from various Town boards and departments and the private 
sector. 

Goals were established by the Partnership as follows: 

1. Initiate affordable housing development ( s ) on Town-owned land. 

2. Encourage private development of affordable housing. 

3. Continue the on-going education process. 

4. Develop a housing trust fund. 

Various techniques for the creation of affordable housing have been explored 
by the Partnership, including encouraging accessory apartments, density 
bonuses and the use of Town-owned land. 

During the past year the Housing Partnership has reviewed Town-owned land 
sites for potential affordable housing. The process for development of 
affordable housing on Town-owned land will follow the same disposition process 



-30- 



as required for the sale of all parcels of Town-owned land. Upon a 
recommendation by the Property Review Board and Town Manager, Town Meeting 
must vote to approve the sale of the land for affordable housing. Proposals 
would then be requested from any interested developer, non-profit and for- 
profit. The Housing Partnership would review proposals and make a 
recommendation to the Property Review Board and Town Manager. The Partnership 
hopes to move ahead with several sites in 1992. 

Guidelines for the development of affordable housing were completed by the 
Partnership this year. These guidelines outline the process for submittal and 
review of affordable housing developments and outline the development 
criteria. 

The Partnership has been working closely with a developer regarding proposed 
affordable housing on Silverhurst Avenue. This development has received local 
and state approval. Two units of affordable housing will be created and sold 
to eligible first-time homebuyers in 1992. 

The Partnership has monitored the progress of Shawsheen Commons over the past 
year. Phase I of the development was substantially completed in 1991, 
providing affordable housing for thirteen families, including ten families 
from Wilmington. 

Representatives of the Partnership have met with various civic groups during 
the year, including Rotary and Kiwanis to discuss what affordable housing 
means and how a community such as Wilmington can provide affordable housing 
for its residents. An Affordable Housing Seminar was jointly sponsored by the 
Chamber of Commerce and the Housing Partnership which looked at affordable 
housing from both a public and private perspective, including the impact on 
business. 

The establishment of a housing trust fund was researched. A housing trust 
fund would enable the Town to respond to opportunities, such as the 
acquisition of a home about to be demolished. This goal is a difficult one, 
but the Partnership will continue to work toward this end. 

The creation of affordable housing is a difficult and time-consuming process, 
especially in these economic times. The Partnership needs the support of the 
Town to provide affordable housing for Wilmington residents.

Redevelopment Authority 

In 1991, the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority completed the preliminary 
project justification report for roadway and intersection improvement projects 
for the Route 38/129 area between the Route 62 intersection and the Tewksbury 
town line. 

After preliminary review and consultation with the Massachusetts Department of 
Public Works regarding concerns expressed about the extensive nature of the 
proposed improvements, the Authority engaged the engineering firm of Fay, 
Spofford and Thorndike to investigate alternative proposals for consideration 
by the Town and the Massachusetts Department of Public Works. The contract 
work will be completed in 1992. 

Additionally, the Authority has worked throughout 1991 with the District 
Office of the Massachusetts Department of Public Works and the Town to 
coordinate planning and design activities for the Route 62 bridge replacement 
and intersection projects. 

In 1991 the Massachusetts Department of Public Works selected Storch 
Engineering to prepare the design for the bridge and intersection project. 
The Authority has retained Bruce Campbell and Associates to replace the 
Authority in the design process and to monitor progress for the Town of 
Wilmington. 

The Officers of the Authority are as follows: Carl A. Backman, Jr., Chairman; 
Vaughn R. Surprenant, Vice Chairman; Sidney R. Kaizer, Treasurer; Patricia F. 
Duggan, Assistant Treasurer; and Charles N. Gilbert, Secretary. 



Recycling Advisory Committee 



The Wilmington Recycling Advisory Committee (WRAC) has completed its second 
full year of operation. The primary purpose of the Recycling Committee is to 
develop recommendations for compliance with the State's recycling mandates.

In addition, the Committee is responsible for recycling education, monitoring 
the activities and providing volunteer support for the Town's Recycling Drop- 
Off Center. Wilmington has achieved a new milestone in its recycling program. 
The total (juantity of material recycled by the Town increased from 553 tons in 
1990 to 773 tons in 1991. This increase in material removed from the waste 
streaun clearly demonstrates the increasing support for recycling in 
Wilmington. The Committee has established as its new recycling goal the 
removal of 900 tons of material from the waste stream in 1992. 

In October, the Committee sponsored a Second Anniversary Recycling Bash at the 
Recycling Drop-Off Center. Thanks to donations from several local businesses, 
T-shirts and refreshments were available for visitors. In an attempt to 
provide additional education to residents regarding recycling, information 
tables were set up at the celebration with handouts concerning ways to save 
the environment. The Committee was pleased to see the large turnout. 

White goods, which include refrigerators, washers, dryers, stoves and hot 
water heaters, were added to the list of commodities recycled at the Drop-Off 
Center. Given the weight of these items, including white goods as recyclables 
will significantly increase the amount of material being removed from the 
waste stream. Residents interested in having their white goods collected 
should place them out at the curb on Wednesdays and contact the Department of 
Public Works to advise them that the item is out at the curb. Waste 
Management Boston North, the Town's solid waste hauler will pick the materials 
up at curbside and transport them to the recycling area. Residents may also 
bring these materials down to the Recycling Center during any Saturday. 

The Committee has also been working on preparing a recommendation for a Town- 
wide recycling progrcim. Committee members have contacted numerous communities 
to collect information about the best type of recycling progreim. Given the 
Town's current financial situation and the existing contract with the Town's 
trash hauler, it is anticipated that the earliest a Town-wide recycling 
program could be initiated is July 1, 1993. Given the fluctuation in markets 
for recyclable material and the corresponding fluctuation in cost, the 
committee has postponed finalizing its recommendation until the latter part of 
1992. This will enable the Committee to provide more accurate information 
regarding costs and market conditions for recyclables. 

As always, any interested residents are encouraged to sign up as a volunteer 
for the Recycling Drop-Off Center. Interested individuals may contact the 
Town Manager's office for additional information. 

The Committee wishes to thank the Town Manager and Board of Selectmen for 
their continued support of the recycling progreim and also the continued 
support from the residents. In addition, the Committee gives a whole-hearted 
thank you to all the recycling volunteers who have given up a part of their 
Saturday in an effort to make recycling available to the Town of Wilmington. 
It is due to this Town-wide support that the Wilmington Recycling Program has 
continued to grow for the past two years. 

In closing, the Committee would like to remind residents that the Recycling 
Drop-Off Area is open on Saturdays between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 
p.m. and is located off Old Main Street in South Wilmington. Individuals may 
bring glass (green, brown, clear), newspaper, corrugated cardboard, plastic 
milk jugs, plastic water jugs, aluminum, returnable cans and bottles, leaves, 
Christmas trees and white goods to the center.

Historical Commission 



In 1991, Wilmington's historic Scalekeeper ' s Office was accepted as a gift 
from Mr. & Mrs. Douglas Stewart. The building was subsequently moved to its 
new location adjacent to the old burial ground. Plans are currently being 
made to restore and open this building to public displays on special 
occasions. We remain thankful to the Stewarts for their expression of 
commitment to maintain Wilmington's historic Town Pound; one of only three 
remaining on its original site in New England. 

The Commission is pleased to report that the Massachusetts Historical 
Commission voted unanimously to place the Wilmington Historical Centre Village 
District into nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. The 
National Register is an official list of historic properties throughout the 
United States. Our nomination will be reviewed by the Department of Interior, 
and the final vote of approval is expected in early 1992. The creation of 
this historic district within the Town Common area has been a long-standing 
goal of the Historical Commission. The 110 acre area includes 37 buildings, 
and 3 historical sites. 

Also included on the National Register of Historic places this year were two 
railroad sites in Wilmington; the Yard House on Main Street across from 
Middlesex Avenue and the stone R.R. bridge near the Middlesex Canal at the 
Billerica line. 

Capt. Larz Neilson has been commissioned to write a history of Wilmington. 
Capt. Neilson has long been known for his many interesting in-depth articles 
on the history and folklore of our Town. The Commission is eagerly awaiting 
the compilation of these wonderful stories into one illustrated volume to 
preserve Larz's vast knowledge of Wilmington's past. 

In continuing with our goal to educate the young in the history of our Town, 
presentations were made by Carolyn Harris, Dorothy Lafionatis, and Kevin 
Backman to students of Wilmington schools. The Commission also coordinated a 
display of "Historical Wilmington" student projects from the Woburn Street 
School at a Harnden Tavern Open House. The projects were enjoyed by the many 
who toured the Tavern. 



-49- 



Members of the Commission continued to communicate with other historical 
commissions in the area by attending a joint historical commission meeting in 
Reading, MA. 

Our historical plaque program is continuing to recognize historical properties 
throughout the Town. 

The Col. Joshua Harnden Tavern Open House program continues on the first 
Sunday of each month. Informative historical tours are offered by our 
tenants. Josh and Lisa Winant. 

The Commission continues to work closely with the Friends of the Harnden 
Tavern. The Friends held a successful Strawberry Festival, Harvest Festival, 
Quilt Show, and Christmas Social. Through the efforts of the Friends, the 
front hallway of the Tavern was refurbished. Also, colonial reproduction 
firebacks were installed in the hearths. The Friends, the Department of 
Public Works, and the Wilmington Garden Club designed and planted a colonial 
herb garden on the Tavern grounds. 

The Commission arranged for George and Martha Washington to socialize with 
Wilmington citizens during the Wilmington Minutemen's Colonial Weekend in May. 

Memberships in the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Historic 
Massachusetts have been renewed. 

The Wilmington Historical Commission is most thankful to the Board of 
Selectmen, Town Manager, Public Works and Public Buildings Departments for 
their support and hard work in the relocation and restoration of the 
Scalekeeper ' s Office. The Col. Joshua Harnden Tavern, its carriage house, and 
the Old West School also remain a source of pride to Wilmington through the 
efforts of our Town Departments. 

The Commission meets on the second Monday of the Month in Room 4 of the Town 
Hall at 7:30 p.m. 



Carter Lecture Fund 



On April 25, 1991 at 8:00 P.M. the Carter Lecture Fund Committee presented 
Florence and Philip Walker at the Herbert Barrows Auditorium. Their program 
was on the "Riches of the Renaissance in Leonardo daVinci's Italy." It was a 
feature length color motion picture with authentic sounds and music. They 
have traveled extensively to gather pictures for their international 
geographical film series. It was very well received by an enthusiastic 
audience, which practically filled the auditorium. We would hope to have the 
Walkers return again to give us all another delightful evening in the future. 



Public Buildings Department 



The Public Buildings Department maintains the town's investment of over $53 
million dollars in assessed value of town-owned property. 

Highlights of projects completed during 1991: 

* Exterior painting projects: Harnden Tavern, Barn and 

Minuteman House.

School Administration and all personnel of the Public Buildings Department. 



Recreation Department 

The Wilmington Recreation Department, in its 21st year with full time 
Director, continued to meet new challenges while delivering a comprehensive 
slate of leisure opportunities for the citizens of Wilmington. 

Although the Recreation Department is relatively small, with only two full 
time employees, it represents the second largest industry in the nation. In 
fact, Americans spend about 12 percent of their personal income on recreation. 

The Recreation Commission consists of five volunteer citizens appointed by the 
Town Manager. This board functions in a policy making and advisory capacity 
to the Director. 

The Recreation Commission and Director keep in mind the following departmental 
objectives as they plan and conduct recreation programs throughout the year: 

to provide opportunities for self expression 
to develop a sense of personal worth 

to provide activities that allow for personal achievement and accomplishment 
to provide activities that are fun and enjoyable 

to provide physical activities which are new and different, offering a 

certain amount of challenge to participants 
to teach skills in various activities that will have carry-over value in 

later life 



-51- 



to provide a healthful and diversified program of recreation activities in 
an attempt to meet the needs and interests of the people being served. 

Our total funding comes from a variety of sources. User fees and donations 
heavily supplement the town funded budget which was decimated by the effects 
of Prop. 2 1/2 many years ago. Volunteers always play a key role in providing 
two dollars worth of service for every dollar spent. We also receive much 
help from local clubs and organizations. Some of these invaluable 
contributors are: Rotary, Lions Club, Kiwanis, Chamber of Commerce, 
Wilmington Town Employees Association, Tewksbury/Wilmington Elks, Police 
Association, Pop Warner, Custodial Union, Sons of Italy, Ametek Employees Good 
Neighbor Fund, Woburn District Court, Analog Devices, Leavitts Insurance, 
Michael's Place, Century 21, Lockhart Machine Co., Polymere Tech., Ametek, 
Special Needs PAC, Bay Bank, Mass Bank, Polaroid, Stelio's Restaurant, Action 
Glass, F&R Auto Supply, Textron Defense System, Dunkin Donuts of Wilmington 
and Burlington, Wildside Sports, McDonalds, Burger King, Ft. Howard, Rocco's 
and Auxiliary Police. 

The Recreation Department is always involved, in varying degrees, with many 
recreation oriented groups. In this nature we serve as a cpaasiconsult ing 
agency. We also loan recreation equipment to families and groups of all types 
for various functions. We program use of the Shawsheen Tech Pool for scout 
and other groups. 

Our basic programs are: Santa's Workshop, Horribles Parade, Special Kids 
Christmas Party, Christmas shopping in New York City, Spring Trip to New York 
City, Basketball League, Men's Basketball, Men's Gym, Swimming Lessons, Swim- 
A-Cross, CPR, First Aid, Punt, Pass & Kick Contest, Gymnastics, Ladies 
Fitness, Cinema Discounts, Other Commercial Recreation Enterprise Discount 
Coupons, Sesame Street Live at Boston Garden, Special Needs Programs, Boat 
Cruise to Provincetown, Florida Discounts, T-Ball, Easter Egg Hunts, Circus 
Tickets at Boston Garden, Bruins Tickets, Summer Playground, Tiny Tots, 
Special Needs Day Camp, Public Beach Lifeguard Supervision, Canoe Rental and 
Clinic, Crane's Beach Day, Tennis Lessons, Concerts on the Common, Red Sox 
Trips, Sport Clinics, Fishing Derby, Co-ed Volleyball, Disney on Ice Trip, 
Free Loan of Fishing, Canoeing, Soccer, Aerobics, Hawaii and other VCR Tapes, 
Police Association Beach Day, Easter Coloring Contest, Sale of Entertainment 
Discount Books, Special Needs Trips to the Shrines Rodeo and Circus, Sale of 
Greater Boston Discount Books, Ballroom Dancing Lessons, Atlantic City Trip, 
Karate, Kinder Karate, Aquacize, Junior Basketball, Coaches Clinic and 
"Parents of Youths in Sports" Clinic, Topsfield Fair Tickets, Rafting, 
Babysitting Course and Play Gym. 

Other groups that offer leisure type programs in Wilmington are: Little 
League, Council on Aging, Pony League, Youth Hockey, Pop Warner, Figure 
Skating Club, Men's Softball, Square Dancing, Youth Soccer, Tennis Club, July 
4th Committee, Council for the Arts, Scouts and Campfire. Schools and 
churches round out the active recreation picture. 

There is an obvious lack of commercial recreation facilities in Wilmington 
such as bowling centers and movie theaters. The Town also lacks youth serving 
agencies such as YMCA's, MWCA's, Boys and Girls Clubs. The addition of the 
skating rink is a great plus. This void stresses the importance for town 
support of this Department's various leisure oriented programs. 

Thanks go to Town Departments, youth and civic minded groups and those 
volunteers and part-time employees of this department that provide invaluable 
assistance in producing a well rounded program for the Town.

Veterans' Agent 



The Wilmington Veterans' Agent, Paul A. Farrell, respectfully submits his 
Annual Report for the year 1991. Special thanks to Carolyn Kenney for her 
clerical assistance. 

Veteran Services is governed by the General Laws of Massachusetts, Chapter 115 
as amended with strict compliances to the Chapter, the rules and policies of 
which govern the disbursement of aid. 

Benefits are for the needy veteran and his immediate feunily who have been 
subject to unforseen needs. Final approval of benefits comes from the 
Commissioner of Veterans' Services, Boston, Massachusetts. 

The total expended for aid to veterans and their families for the entire year 
was $14,298.25. The balance of the first six months of 1991 from previous 
appropriations was zero; total available funds beginning July 1, 1991 was 
$10,000. 

The total expended by Veterans Administration directly to the veteran 
population in Wilmington was $1,424,929, for benefits for the fiscal year 
ending June 30, 1991, representing the amount of tax dollars not required to 
be expended for those who because of circumstances find it necessary to apply 
for aid. 

The appropriation for FY92 was $10,000 as voted at the Annual Town Meeting, 
with no balance forwarded for the first six months of 1992. 



Library 

The Director of the Memorial Library respectfully submits his annual report 
for the year 1991 with its accompanying compilation of statistics. 

1991 was not markedly different from its immediate predecessors. The Library 
continued to provide its basic services and access to educational, 
informational, and recreational books and library materials. The 
preoccupation over adequate financial support continued. 

The library community has reported throughout the country that usage and 
circulation has increased dramatically due to social and economic conditions. 
This observation is sustained in Wilmington. Overall circulation increased by 
8% during 1991 to reach 139,233. Circulation of children's materials 
increased by 10,000 during this period. For a variety of reasons, the 
Children's Department accounts for 60% of the Library's total circulation. 
Recorded reference requests increased 10% over the previous year. 1991 inter- 
library loan statistics reveal a 15% increase in requests from other librarys; 
and, a 17% increase in requests to other libraries. The Merrimack Valley 
Library Consortium continues to be a sound investment, and membership within 
it essential. Nine percent of over-the-counter circulation is by non-resident 
patrons with the balance of 91% by Wilmington residents. 

The use of the Library's holdings increased in all categories. The Children's 
Librarian reports an increase in the parenting collection; the Adult Service's 
Librarian reports an increase in the use of "How to" books, resume material, 
job changing books, and other related types of material. Trust funds 
permitted the start of a books-on-tape collection which has proved popular. 
The Richard V. Barry Memorial Fund was utilized to purchase new stands for the 
Library's collection of paperbacks. Throughout 1991, the Library continued to 



-53- 



receive donations of paperbacks in mint condition. Most were novels of light 
romantic fiction, which proved to be highly popular. The Reading Cooperative 
Bank and W.S. Cavanaugh & Son continued their financial support of the 
Library's magazine subscriptions. 

The Library was also supported by many individual volunteers. Young adults 
assisted with the "Funny Summer" reading program. Greg Anderson, Jimmy 
Gleason, Melissa Mather, Michelle Niestepski, Meetal Vaidya, and Joe Whitfield 
helped with the formidable job of shelving 400 books a day, registering summer 
readers, and putting on the weekly film program. Jean Irving, Barbara Berry, 
Joan Grady, and Sharon Winn joined with staff members to deliver the pre- 
school story hours throughout the spring and fall sessions. Evelyn Pierce, 
who has been most faithful and reliable, volunteered throughout 1991 to keep 
the shelves on the main floor in good order. The services of these volunteers 
is gratefully acknowledged. 

The position of Head of Technical Services continued to remain vacant 
throughout 1991. The Library did not experience any attrition in its full- 
time staff. Claudine Auger, Senior Page in the Children's Department, 
resigned following four years of service, first as a volunteer and then as a 
Page. 

The accomplishments of 1991 are due to the efforts of the full and part-time 
staff in large measure. The Director acknowledges the support of the Board of 
Library Trustees, Town Manager, Finance Committee, and the Town. Recognition 
of the importance and value of the Town's Library made the vagaries of 1991 
bearable. The financial challenge of 1992 with all its vagaries will require 
the same steadfast degree of support. It is ironic - more is demanded and 
more is expected when less can be provided. The Library operated successfully 
with its limitations. Social and economic conditions, however, stimulated 
growth during 1991.

began the process of insuring that all stores conformed to proper price 
displays. 

There were also four complaints dealing with phases of Weights and Measures 
that were acted on and corrected.

Conservation Commission 



Despite recessionary trends appearing elsewhere, 1991 turned out to be a busy 
year for the Conservation Commission. Long-time member and former Chairman, 
Donald Ugolini resigned from the Commission in May, 1991. The Commission paid 
tribute to him for his many years of dedicated service. The Commission also 
welcomed a new member to the Commission, Lynne Guzinski. The processing of 
applications and general administration and enforcement of the MA Wetlands 
Protection Act continued to be the top priority for the Wilmington 
Conservation Commission, as the bulk of the Commission's time was devoted to 
overseeing land development activities in and near wetlands throughout the 
Town. Among it's many decisions this year, the Commission focused special 
attention on protection of Lubbers Brook and it's associated floodplain; 
denying an Order of Conditions for a commercial/industrial building on Concord 
St., proposed to be partially within the 100 yr. floodplain and bordering 
vegetated wetlands of Lubbers Brook. The Commission's decision was upheld in 
an appeal and affirmed by the D.E.P. The Conservation Administrator, along 
with Town residents, participated in a Spring clean-up of a section of Lubbers 
Brook adjoining Rte. 62 (Middlesex Ave.) which promises to be an annual event 
with the Kiwanis Club. 

Strides were made in 1991 in efforts to undertake Conservation land 
acquisition in accordance with the Commission's acquisition priorities and the 
Town of Wilmington's Open Space and Recreation Plan. This past year, several 
wetlands areas totalling approximately 6 acres have been protected, including 
parcels containing the 100 year floodplain of Maple Meadow Brook, Ipswich 
River and a variety of wetlands areas throughout the Town. The Commission 
continues to encourage land donations and conservation easements and 
restrictions which benefit landowners via provision of tax reduction 
incentives. All who are interested in making a contribution to land 
preservation in Wilmington are urged to contact the Commission office at any 
time. The Conservation Commission also worked hard promoting environmental 
awareness and education in 1991 and will continue these worthwhile efforts. 
The Conservation Administrator conducted two Teachers' Workshops this year on 
Aquatic Project Wild for grades K-12, designed to promote wise use of land 
resources and conservation of wildlife habitat. The Conservation Commission 
and it's staff gratefully acknowledge the support and cooperative efforts 
exhibited by the Selectmen, Town Manager and all of the Town Departments, 
Boards and Commissions this year. Wetlands protection, environmental 
education and open space preservation goals can only be fully realized with 
the assistance and cooperation of Wilmington's citizens. The Conservation 
Commission wishes to thank the residents and the community for their support 
throughout the year.

Elderly Services Commission 

In 1991 the Council on Aging was reorganized as the Elderly Services 
Commission. A seven member Commission was appointed by the Town Manager. 
Appointed to serve as commissioners were Lillian Brown, Rocco DePasquale, 
Evelyn Kaminski, Grace Kirkland, Henry Latta, Maureen Rounds and Marilyn 
McCarthy. 

With the number of residents reaching the age of 60 increasing rapidly in 
Wilmington, the Town Manager felt the elderly would be better served through a 
Elderly Services Commission. Realizing when help is needed for an elderly 
parent or an elderly person is looking for services for themselves, being 
listed as the Elderly Services Commission would be where help would be found. 
As we compared our telephone calls with last year we know this has been a 
welcome change for the towns older residents. 

In 1991 we also celebrated the 5th Anniversary of the opening of the Buzzell 
Senior Citizen Center. In the last five years many services and programs have 
been implemented to help the seniors with their many problems, such as, 
assistance with Social Security, Medicare, Fuel, Food Stamps, SSI, Supplement 
Insurance policies, Elder Abuse, Nursing Care, Homemakers, Housing, 
Transportation, Respite Care, Nursing Homes, Meals on Wheels, Day Care, 
Counseling, Activity Programs, Health Programs and Recreational Programs. 
Participation has increased in all our programs. 

This year we received 8,050 telephone calls for many services and general 
information, an increase of 1,003. 

Services rendered through the Elderly Services Commission to the elders in 
1991 were: 



Transportation to medical and other elderly 

related travel appointments 5,840 

Meals on Wheels to shut-ins 13,782 

Meals served at the congregated lunch site 6,578 

Respite care services given to handicapped seniors 825 
Special holiday dinners to our homebound donated by the 

Analog Device Corp., Kiwanis, Rotary & Lions Clubs 475 



-59- 



Applications for fuel, oil burners and 

weatherization 159 

Total participation in all activity programs 11,548 

Kitchen socialization throughout the year 12,565 

Game room participation 5,664 

Surplus Commodities delivered 576 

To the following we extend our thanks for funds, enabling us to deliver the 
above services: 

The taxpayers for approving our budget 95,162 

Community Teamwork, Inc. for accepting applications 

for fuel, oil burners and weatherization 74,450 

Minuteman Home Care for homemakers, daycare, 

protective services and transportation to Boston 

hospitals by lift van 148,478 
Executive Office of Elder Affairs for accepting 

our Grant application 4,060 
H. B. Fuller Company for painting the homes of 
two disabled seniors living alone 

Mystic Valley Mental Health services for depression 
and addiction abuse 

Northeast Visiting Nurse Association in-home nursing services 
Federal and State Agencies for getting the help needed for 
seniors when requested 

Hampshire Press for donating the printing of all our brochures, 
get-well cards and change books for the Senior Fair 

Maple Meadow Gardens for the donation of a Christmas Tree to the Center 
The Farmer and the Dell for their donation of pastry used every 
day at the center 

Analog Device Corporation for the donation of catered dinners for 
our disabled, ill and frail seniors 

We thank the Town Manager for his help and guidance and the following clubs 
for their donations to the senior citizens: 



Kiwanis Club for their generous monthly donation to the whist, 

the Annual Shut-in Dinner and their Thanksgiving and 

Christmas donations of fuel and food for seniors in need 
Rotary Club for their monthly food gift certificate and 

Christmas food gift certificates 
Lions Club for their Annual Senior Citizen Dinner Dance and 

monthly food gift certificates 
Tewksbury/Wilmington Elks for their Annual Thanksgiving Dinner 

Dance and donation towards the rental of their hall for the 

therapeutic social 
To all the merchants who contributed gifts and many for the Fair chance 

books 

A thanks also to the many seniors who volunteered hundreds of 
hours in visiting seniors in their homes, hospitals and nursing 
homes, instructing activity programs, making a variety of 
articles for the Fair and working on the Fair to earn enough 
money to purchase a much needed copier for the center and pay 
for three therapeutic socials 

To all who helped in any way in making the lives of the elderly residents of 
Wilmington more meaningful in 1991, we are very grateful.

Council for the Arts 



Despite the restraints of the current economic situation, the Wilmington 
Council for the Arts realized a successful and productive year in 1991. It 
has worked diligently to encourage interest in and an awareness of the arts 
throughout the community. 

The council is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council (formerly the 
Mass. Arts Lottery Council) whose purpose is to raise funds to be used for the 
community arts. Their objective remains (as outlined in their Guidelines ) (a) 
to promote and maintain the vitality of existing cultural resources, (b) to 
insure the continued contribution of these resources to local communities of 
the Commonwealth, and (c) to involve as many citizens as possible in some 
aspect of cultural activity. Budget reductions have necessitated the MCC 
making one annual allocation to local arts lottery councils rather than two as 
in the past. Wilmington's allotment has therefore been cut in half and 
applications were accepted for only the spring cycle. Out of 12 applications 
9 were approved. Scholarships were awarded to high school graduates who will 
continue their education in arts-oriented fields: Betsy Tate, Kristina 
Przyjemski, and Eric Pearlstein. Grants were awarded for publication of a 
book by the late John Orner portraying the life of his missionary parents in 
Zaire; two elementary school play productions; and study in Ireland for 
Grainne Murphy who has won local and national recognition for her fiddle 
playing. She is an 8th grade student. A grant makes available a year's pass 
to the Museum of Fine Arts by Wilmington residents which may be obtained at 
the Memorial Library. 

The Eleventh Annual Art Exhibition, held over two days, June 29 and 30, was a 
tremendous success. Almost 200 works were exhibited. Special thanks are 
extended to Mr. Bruce Jope of Goodfellow Galleries, a council member, for his 
professional hanging of the exhibition. The three judges were the following 
professional artists: 

Doris Driscoll of Reading, winner of numerous awards in New York and New 
England. 

Jerush Montez of Reading, recipient of may awards and prizes in the United 
States and Europe. 

Shirley Winslow of Tewksbury who has had numerous one-person shows and has won 
many awards. 

Patricia Sullivan won the John D. Brooks award, given to a Wilmington artist 
who has shown most progress in his work. Other awards were as follows: Thomas 
Marcotti's watercolor - Most Popular vote. Prizes in watercolors were as 
follows: First, Maya M. Jacob; Second, Barbara Johansen; Third, Elaine 
Bradley. 

In the Oils/Acrylics category. First to Stephen S. Greco; Second to Anthony 
Estrella; and Third to Dorothy Richards. In Pen and Ink, First to Charlotte 
McCain; Second to Laurel A. Ford; and Third to Ida S. Colucci. In 
Photography, First, Bryon S. Borga; Second to Richard S. Laider, and Third to 
Michael P. Niestepski. In the category designated as "Other", First, Terri 
Werner; Second, Mary Ethier; and Third, Helen Handrahan. 

In December an exhibition of Abstract Art by Tina Prentiss, Marguerite Elia 
and Francis Toohey attracted a large, appreciative attendance. A number of 
demonstrations at the Center proved of great interest. A particularly 
rewarding one was that of Claire Batley, a graphic designer from Reading. Her 
pencil rendering and pen and ink demonstration was fascinating to watch, made 
more so by Mrs. Batley 's warm and outgoing personality. She donated her 
demonstration work, a large pencil rendering of trees, to the Arts Center. It 
was gratefully received. Wayne Jope gave an interesting demonstration on the 
art of Bonsai in September and Gracia Parkhill Dayton of Lexington provided a 



-73- 



demonstration on "Mixed Media" in November. A demonstration on Photography 
was given by Rick Silva who has taught a class on the subject during the year. 

Arts classes sponsored by the Arts Council were again extremely well attended. 
A very small fee is charged for instruction by professional artists. There 
were afternoon classes in watercolor techniques taught by Elaine Bradley and 
evening classes by Louise Anderson. In each case the classes were extended 
beyond their planned period by request of enthusiastic students. A short 
course in Photography was taught by Rick Silva, prompting one participant to 
pursue this interest as a full-time student. Shirley Winslow offered an all- 
day workshop which was enthusiastically attended. 

Sunday afternoon concerts were great successes, playing to a full house in 
each instance. SRO became the rule. In October a piano and organ concert 
with Maybelle Bliss at the piano and Carolyn Stanhope at the organ was warmly 
received. Grainne Murphy, winner of a grant, played the fiddle, ably assisted 
by her young brother on drum. In December a singing trio, "Silk Stockings" 
singing music of the 40 's was a hit. At the Liberty Pole Weekend in May the 
center held an open house at which Barbara Zaino on the dulcimer and Marjorie 
Newman on the recorder played hauntingly beautiful music. An exhibit by Adele 
Passmore of photographs of old-time Wilmington was of such interest that it 
prompted a holdover on the following Sunday. 

Two bus trips were provided. One to the Currier Gallery in Manchester, NH for 
their "From Coret to Monet" was offered at a minimal cost as was the trip in 
July to the Museum of Fine Arts for "Pleasures of Paris: Daumier and Picasso". 

Over the years the Wilmington Arts Center has become a significant factor in 
the cultural activities of the town. Piano recitals, private one-man art 
shows, and a delightful doll house exhibition by the Wilmington Women's Club 
all were presented at the Arts Center. Once a week the singing group "Sweet 
Adelines" rehearses at the center. 

During 1991 improvements were made to the center. New carpeting and track 
lighting have been provided. Although the Arts Council assumes the cost of 
these materials, the actual work of installing them is under the able 
direction of Mr. Roger Lessard and his workers. The work done by this group 
on the installation of the track lighting system is professional and lends 
great beauty and dimension to the art gallery. The council deeply appreciates 
their efforts. Donations to the center, while not extensive, are needed and 
welcome. We thank anyone who has contributed. Special appreciation by the 
council for the assistance of Mr. Eric White is warmly extended. His help 
throughout the year enabled them to ready the center for the exhibitions, 
classes, concerts, and demonstrations it presented. Special mention must be 
made of those artists who donated their original works to the permanent 
collection of the Arts Center. These were the watercolor by Mrs. Evelyn 
Andersen, the pencil rendition by Mrs. Clair Bat ley and the beautiful abstract 
by Marguerite Elia. 

Officers of the Council for the Arts are: Elizabeth White, Chairperson; Edith 
Michelson, Vice Chairperson; Anne Buzzell, Treasurer; Mary Orner, Recording 
Secretary; and Frances D. Keough, Corresponding Secretary/Publicity. 

The council is grateful for the support of the people of Wilmington, the Town 
Manager, and the Board of Selectmen.

Metropolitan Area Planning Council 



The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) continued to provide regional 
planning services to Wilmington and 100 other communities in the Greater 
Boston Area during 1991. MAPC appreciates Wilmington's continued support and 
looks forward to additional service in the years ahead. 

1. As part of MetroPlan 2000 — MAPC's regional development plan — 
Wilmington was included in the following projects: 

Review and comment on the Annual Transportation 

Improvement Program; 
Discussion and input into the amendments to the State 

Implementation Plan for Air Quality; 
Representation at the Program for Mass Transportation (PMT) 

hearings sponsored by the Massachusetts Executive Office 

of Transportation and Construction; 
Review and input to "A Strategic Metropolitan Transportation 

System" ; 

Development of Transportation, Land Resources and Housing 
Elements . 

2. Wilmington was also included in these reports developed at the 
newly formed MAPC Data Center: 

Population/age group forecasts; 
Subregional and community census profiles; 
Census data analysis; 

Mapping of land resource protection areas. 

3. Wilmington has been an active member of the North Suburban Planning 
Council (NSPC), which is one of MAPC's subregional groups. MAPC 
has continued to provide staff support to the NSPC. During the past 
year, the following accomplishments have helped further regional 
and subregional planning efforts: 

Implementation of procedures for review of developments with 

regional impacts; 
Identification of transportation priorities; 
Participation in the affordable housing workshop; 
Input into the MetroPlan 2000 action recommendations; 
Identification of commuter parking locations in the subregion. 

4. MAPC has begun to focus upon the specific needs of local communities in 
these times of tight budgets. Two programs which should benefit 
Wilmington are the Pavement Management Program and the Joint Services 
Program. 

5. Wilmington's MAPC representative, serving as Treasurer for MAPC, has 
also been quite active in the policy-making discussions at the MAPC 
Officer and Executive Committee levels. 



Housing Authority 



This year has proven to be another year of transition and change for the 
Wilmington Housing Authority. Three vacancies existed with the retirement of 
Elaine Hachey and relocation of residency of David Fitzgerald to Haverhill, 
Massachusetts and Michael Donovan to Wisconsin. Thomas Siracusa was appointed 



-75- 



as the state appointee through the Secretary of the Executive Office of 
Communities and Development. The remaining two temporary vacancies were 
filled by appointments of the Wilmington Housing Authority and Board of 
Selectmen, and we extend a welcome to Alfred Meegan and Dorothy Butler, who 
will run for a three and five year seat on the Board in the April, 1992 
election. 

Due to the Commonwealth's budget crisis, the Wilmington Housing Authority does 
not foresee any development in the near future, however, the authority is 
fortunate to be pursuing a modernization project of basement waterproofing, 
which is in the design review process with the Executive Office of Communities 
& Development. This project will encompass four buildings at Deming Way which 
have water in the basements. In addition to this work, as units become 
vacant, the kitchen cabinets and countertops are being redone. An article for 
conveyance of a parcel of land by the Town to the Wilmington Housing Authority 
was updated to allow for the construction of a family home, however due to the 
recall of development money, it will not be built at this time. 

The present Board members are: Thomas Siracusa, Chairman; A. Daniel Gillis, 
Vice-chairman; Joan Sadowski, Treasurer; Alfred Meegan and Dorothy Butler. 
Staff consists of Executive Director Ella Belmore and Administrative 
Assistant, Phyllis Tumsarock. Edward Melanson is the maintenance man. 

The authority is proud of its past accomplishments and would like to thank the 
endeavors of our past members, Elaine Hachey, David Fitzgerald and Michael 
Donovan for their support, work and time. We would also like to thank the 
townspeople. Town Manager, Board of Selectmen, Department of Public Works, 
Fire & Police Department, Building & Board of Health Department, Planning & 
Conservation Department for their support and help on numerous requests. They 
all have been more than willing and most helpful to the tenants, staff and 
board by working harmoniously with us.

Department of Public Works 



In accordance with the By-Laws of the Town of Wilmington, I hereby 
respectfully submit the Annual Report on the activities of the Wilmington 
Department of Public Works for the year 1991. 

The divisions of the Department of Public Works are: Highway, Tree, Cemetery, 
Parks & Grounds, Engineering, and Rubbish Collection and Disposal. The

Selectmen for their support throughout the year. Last but not least, the 
employees of the Department of Public Works who made 1991 a very productive 
year, my sincere thanks and appreciation. 



Commission on Disabilities 

As of the 1991 Town Meeting, the Wilmington Handicapped Affairs Commission 
(WHAC) became the Wilmington Commission on Disabilities (WCOD). This name 
change is in line with the state level name change made by the Mass. Office on 
Handicapped Affairs (OHA) to the Mass. Office on Disabilities (MOD). WCOD 
became established under M.G.L. Chapter 40, Section 8 (J) to duplicate MOD'S 
services here on the town level. 

Our year centered on, for the most part, access issues. There is the ongoing 
effort to make all schools accessible to and usable by people with 
disabilities. We are now at the position where at least one school at each 
level of public education is wheelchair accessible. The deaf and hard of 
hearing accessibility can be met through closed circuit antennae loops for 
compatible hearing aids in pertinent class rooms and public speaking areas. 
Deaf issues through the adoption of American Sign Language (ASL) as a second 
language in our schools. We are now doing studies into the process by which 
all children, regardless of their individual health care needs, may have the 
free citizens right to public education. 

Accessible and usable public housing for people with disabilities is being 
worked on through the Town's Housing Authority, the Executive Office of 
Communities and Development (EOCD), the new Deming Way Extension's Architect, 
the Architectural Access Board (AAB) and WCOD. There seems to be some 
misunderstanding on the part of EOCD regarding AAB jurisdiction over the new 
building. Because it was built with public money, WCOD feels positive that 
the issue of accessibility for the mobility impaired to both floors will be 
settled by the time this annual report goes to print. 

The Commission consists of the following advocates for the rights of people 
with disabilities: 

Frank Botte 
Lillian Brown 
Larry Curtis 
Dee Genetti 

Selectman Bob Doucette 

The Commission produced a 1992 update of their resource manual. Dee Genetti 
is working with the library staff on setting up an accessible disability 
issues' section in the public library. The private purchase of an optical 
character recognition (text) reader device for the library is still a goal of 
the Commission. This device can scan, recognize and speak text that it "sees" 
so that people who are blind, dyslexic or having other reading disabilities 
could access the printed word in the library. 

The Commission's chairperson is also liaison to the Wilmington Committee for 
Citizens with Disabilities, Inc. (WCCD) . WCCD is a private non-profit 
organization established for the direct and personal involvement of people 
with disabilities for self help. WCCD provides a community based organization 
to learn and fine tune their self advocacy skills as well as to assist those 
who do not yet share the basic knowledge of living independently with a 
disability. The Commission recognizes WCCD as the voice of the people with 
disabilities for the Town of Wilmington and responds accordingly to any 
complaints of discrimination made by them.

disabilities for the Town of Wilmington and responds accordingly to any 
complaints of discrimination made by them. 

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) went into effect this past January. 
The ADA, combined with existing Massachusetts Laws, gives people with 
disabilities greater opportunities through guarantees of access to public 
access. People with disabilities cannot be excluded or in any way 
discriminated against solely because of their disability. 



School Department 



WILMINGTON HIGH SCHOOL 
PAUL T. FLEMING, PRINCIPAL 
EDWARD J. WOODS, ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL 

What follows is an attempt to express the appreciation of the high school's 
administration, staff, and student body to the citizens of Wilmington for 
their endless support. 

It is similarly an attempt to encourage all of the citizenry to choose to 
continue to extend that support based on the results of our efforts. 

That the quality of a town's high school directly effects its property values 
and image as a desirable place to live is a given. That Wilmington High 
School sends 80 to 82 percent of its graduates on to further training, was 
recently granted full accreditation by the New England Secondary Schools and 
Colleges Accreditation Association, and is disciplined, drug free, and a first 
class learning environment, can be considered proof that the academic 
community on Church Street is committed to making its school the best possible 
mirror image of what the town represents. 

We extend our on-going gratitude to the townspeople for our wonderful 
facilities to include our beautiful newly refurbished auditorium. The 
recommendation of the Town Manager to transfer funds for the Barrows project, 
and the subjective efforts of Miss Lorraine Kalil, the Director of Performing 
and Fine Arts, were especially noteworthy in getting the job done. 

In 1990, the Wilmington High School graduating class won approximately 
$700,000. in scholarships and aid. In 1991 our 161 graduates, in a slightly 
tougher economic market, won approximately $320,000. in scholarships and aid. 

Local scholarships in both of the above years averaged approximately $70,000. 
thanks to many, many generous businesses, service groups, and individuals. 
Many of those grants made the actual difference in choice of college or 
university. 

We believe that the readers of this report, regardless of age or relationship 
to the high school, would want us at this point, to outline what we feel is 
necessary to maintain the results, quality and pride they have allowed us to 
develop and nurture at their high school. 

Such an outline seems unusually necessary because of the contemporary penchant 
of so many Americans to curiously criticize the institution of the public 
school for functioning in so many places in a fashion that exactly reflects 
what they demand it to be. 



The tenets of need that come next are not "pie in the sky". They are 
"bedrock" factors of a quality high school education and have existed in 
Wilmington, thanks to its taxpayers, for a long time. 



-82- 



1) We need enough top flight teachers to be able to group youngsters 
for optimum learning regardless of aptitude or learning 
deficiencies. 

2) We need the Town's policy makers to defend the need, that because 
the Town's high school has a population of 700 youngsters, and must 
offer a wide range of offerings to remain accredited those 
previously referred to grouping practices will produce small class 
sizes at our best and least skilled levels. 

We respectfully submit that, although costly, said sized classrooms 
should be thought of as an example of community pride. 

3) We need to replace textbooks and software when they wear out and/or 
replace them when the passage of time or advances of technology make 
their content obsolete. 

4) We need to continue offering our students research and reading 
opportunities through the high school library. 

5) We need to be able to continue to offer "Anatomy and Physiology", 
Calculus, Honors English, Advanced Placement American History, and a 
fifth year of instruction in Spanish and French, because our 
community produces youngsters who can and do excel at those levels. 

6) We need to be able to continue to offer exploratory programs in 
Industrial Arts and Home Economics because Physics, Sociology, and 
on and on do not occur in vacuums. 

7) We need to provide computer assisted instruction in Special 
Education, Mathematics, Writing, Word Processing and Accounting 
because, as everyone knows, ours is forever more a technological 
society. 

8) We need to continue to provide student opportunities for athletic 
competition, and intellectual and creative expression, through 
Music, Art, Drama and/or the school newspaper. 

And we need to provide opportunities for our youngsters to help those who are 
less fortunate then themselves. This is done among other ways, through 
participation in peer leadership programs, community service formats, and our 
anti-substance abuse activities (S.A.D.D.). 

Examples of specific accomplishments and improvements in the 1990-1991 school 
year were as follows: our students matriculated at Northern Essex Community 
College, Harvard University, Boston College, Suffolk University, Holy Cross 
College, Brandies University, University of Notre Dame, University of 
Massachusetts, Merrimack College, Assumption College, Curry College and many 
more. 

Our Soccer, Field Hockey, and Baseball teams entered state level competition 
at the end of their seasons. 

S.A.T. courses in Mathematics and English were offered in preparation for that 
excunination. Seventy-five percent of the student body was enrolled in Foreign 
Language instruction. 

Our guidance department offered two financial aid evenings for parents. 

Several, but not all, of our large classes that had been caused by previous 
budget cuts were reduced when teachers were recalled. Planning for 
cooperative learning strategies to incorporate Special Needs' youngsters into 
regular education classrooms was undertaken. Computer progrcutuning courses 
have been reinstituted. 



-83- 



Please be encouraged to call or visit us at the high school. Senior citizens 
or folks interested in the possibility of registering for a course either for 
informational or retaining purposes should contact the guidance department or 
Mr. Fleming at 694-6060. 



NORTH INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL 
Michael Tikonoff, Principal 
and 

WEST INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL 
James Jordan, Principal 

During the 1991-92 school year, the North and West Intermediate schools moved 
closer to meeting the challenges of the 2l8t century. Both schools are 
attempting to embrace the challenge offered by the Bush Administration in the 
"Education 2000 Plan" to all the states. One of these goals is to develop a 
stronger curriculum in the sciences so that our students might be competitive 
with others throughout the world. Specifically this is being addressed in 
both middle schools with the acquisition of some vital high tech equipment. 

Both schools believe that students are becoming sophisticated information 
consumers. As active citizens they must develop a high level of competence in 
working with scientific images. The videodisc-based learning process helps 
our students grasp the complexities of a variety of scientific concepts. This 
new technology now exists in four science labs at the West and the North. 
Each of these classrooms is equipped with a high resolution monitor, a laser 
videodisc player, and a variety of curriculum support videodiscs. This 
equipment was obtained through a Federal Chapter II Grant. 

Teachers in both schools are actual leaders of this great classroom 
expedition. They are helping students discover new concepts by encouraging 
exploration and invoking a sense of curiosity. We look forward to providing 
each of our students with ever expanding usages of technology in the 
classroom. Together we will strive to prepare them for a global society. 

The North and West Intermediate Schools continue to foster Wilmington's 
movement towards a middle school format. We offer flexible scheduling, grade 
level tesuns and curriculum which attempts to meet the needs of adolescents. 
Activity block and a diverse exploratory course selection (Art, PE, Music, 
Tech. Ed., Computers and libraries) provide Wilmington Middle Schoolers with 
every opportunity to achieve at a high level. 



SHAWSHEEN SCHOOL 
Richard Gorham, Principal 
Michele C. Nortonen, Assistant Principal 

The Shawsheen Elementary School is the second largest school in the community 
with a student population of 617 and growing on a monthly basis. 

The Shawsheen Elementary School continues to see an increase in enrollments. 
Our student population increased approximately 4% from the previous school 
year. Expected increases from the new development off Hopkins St., Gushing 
Estates and Patch's Pond have yet to materialize. Should student enrollment 
from these new developments occur along with normal growth, the school will be 
faced with an immediate need for additional classrooms. 

When the children returned to school in September there were several new faces 
on the teaching staff replacing teachers lost to reductions in personnel 
necessitated by the budget shortfalls. Class sizes continue to grow, the 
Computer Education Program was lost to budget cuts and the prospect for 
returning the program anytime soon seems bleak. 



-84- 



As is always the case, the teaching staff of the school and the parents pulled 
together to provide the best education possible for the Children. Grade 5 
boys, girls, and teachers left for Nature's Classroom where they lived for one 
week working, playing and studying in an environmental setting in Connecticut. 
Great programs have been brought into the school by the hard work of the PAC; 

The Gerwick Puppets, Star Lab, The New England Touring Company, Bruce 
Schwoegler, Magic of Maps, our After School Program, Roller Skating Night and 
many other programs. The Parent Advisory Committee and the school continue to 
work cooperatively for the benefit of all the children. 

A new reading program has been adopted town wide for grades 1 and 2 . The math 
curriculum has been enhanced by the addition of a hands-on concept known as 
Math-Their-Way . The science program is being enhanced by the addition of new 
materials and training that promotes hands-on experiences. 

The overall curriculum of the community is undergoing review and the 
expectations for a new curriculum approach is expected within the next two 
years. 

This is a difficult time for education and for educators, but the teaching 
staff of the Shawsheen School is as dedicated and committed to providing 
cjuality instruction for the children of Wilmington as ever. We are an 
experienced and professional group of teachers who recognize the challenge and 
are up to the task. 



WILDWOOD SCHOOL 
Robert J. Arsenault, Principal 

The Wildwood Elementary School enrollment has continued to increase once again 
this year. At the present time, 345 students are attending our school. The 
staff continues to provide the students with an exciting and diversified 
educational progreun. 

In November of 1991, the students of the Wildwood Elementary School began a 
year-long reading incentive program called "Reading Corps". As the students 
read, they move through the ranks of the armed forces and earn their stripes 
and other prizes. This reading encouragement promotes life-long readers. The 
program's success is due to the support from the students, parents, teachers, 
administrators and the Parent Advisory Council. 

During the past year, the Wildwood Parent Advisory Council has sponsored 
several enrichment programs for the students at the Wildwood School. Some of 
the worthwhile programs presented include: 

New England Touring Theatre-performance of Christopher Columbus 
Earthtunes 

Southwick's Travelling Zoo 
Fossils and Dinosaurs 
Michelle's Menagerie 

The students have enjoyed these educational activities presented by these 
talented artists. 

Recently, the interior of the school received a fresh coat of paint in all the 
corridors. The off-white interior has certainly brightened the school. Also, 
the parents have worked closely with Mr. Palmer to improve our playground 
area. The fresh paint and additional equipment is appreciated by the 
students . 

Under the direction of Miss Kelley, the Extended Day Progrcim began operating 
last fall. This program provides before and after school care for children 
from all three elementary schools and is housed at the Wildwood School. 



-85- 



Fourth and fifth grade students continue to work with first graders to assist 
them with their reading and writing. 

As part of their Child Development course, high school students work closely 
with teachers from grade one and two. This experience has been rewarding for 
both high school students and elementary students. 

Space is at a premium and every nook and cranny is being utilized. The 
library is serving as media center, library and computer room. The students 
are enjoying their experiences. 

WOBURN STREET SCHOOL 
Dolores Silva, Principal 
Richard DeRosas, Assistant Principal 

The FUNZONE PLAYGROUND located behind the Woburn St. School is a unique 
adaptable play area where children of varying degrees of physical abilities 
can play with each other. The playground was started by the Woburn Street 
School PAC and spread out to the community. Janice Silva, Esta Browning, 
Marilyn Gambardella, Janine Gaudreau, Brad Jackson, and Principal Dolores 
Silva, spearheaded the playground committee. Various fundraisers were held to 
raise the money for this project. Different town departments also aided this 
project; the Town Manager Michael Caira, Assistant Town Manager Jeff Hull, Ron 
Swasey of the Recreation Department, Larry Curtis from AIM, Superintendent of 
Schools Williaun J. Fay, Jr., and the DPW. Invaluable assistance for this 
project was given by Bob Palmer and the DPW crew. They prepared the site and 
constructed the playground equipment. The crew also constructed a wheelchair 
ramp giving access to the adaptable structure. The FUNZONE PLAYGROUND is a 
wonderful addition to Wilmington and displays the community and Town 
cooperation and spirit. 

Enrollments 

It was necessary to add a fifth grade class to the Woburn Street School roster 
for the 1991-92 school year to accommodate the 105 students enrolled at this 
grade level. The additional staff member has made it possible to 
departmentalize the course offerings and provide a much more cohesive program 
for the students. 

Energy Conservation 

Fourth graders at the Woburn Street School, once again participated in an 
energy conservation contest sponsored by the Reading Light Company. All 
students were provided with a T-shirt, and under the direction of their Art 
teacher, Mrs. Marie Shack, drew a design depicting a form of energy 
conservation and then transferred the design to the T-shirt. Katie Bavota was 
the second prize winner and received a $50.00 savings bond at a ceremony 
hosted by the Reading Light Company. 

PERFORMING AND FINE ARTS DEPARTMENT 
Lorraine M. Kalil, Director 

Pride, commitment, talent, enthusiasm, and tireless energy - these were the 
ingredients that made possible the renovation of Barrows Auditorium. The 
staff and students of the Performing and Fine Arts Department joined with 
parents, alumni, and friends, in choruses, orchestras, bands, drama and art, 
and 1991 became a year of memorable performances and exhibits. The citizens, 
organizations, business and industries of Wilmington responded in kind 
participation, encouragement, and financial support. The auditorium has been 
renovated and we thank all those who championed the cause and never lost hope. 

Meanwhile, the Performing and Fine Arts Department continues to serve all 
students in grades 1-8, as well as our very talented art, photography, band 
and chorus members in grades 9-12. The instrumental program for strings, 
winds, and percussion in grades 3-12 continues to grow and flourish. Five of

The choruses and band performed for the Town and civic organizations and the 
band took part in parades in Woburn and Lawrence. 

The year was eventful, successful and one in which the entire Performing and 
Fine Arts Staff can be very proud. They brought to each task true artistry, 
professionalism and dedication. 



PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND ATHLETICS DEPARTMENT 
James M. Gillis, Director 

The Physical Education Department continued to serve all students (K-12), as 
well as providing an adaptive program for students with special needs. The 
prograun sponsors a physical education "Mile Club" to encourage physical 
fitness in Grades 5 through 8. 

The health program in Grades K-5, under the direction of Mrs. Laura Stinson, 
has incorporated "Project Charlie" into the curriculum. In Grade 5, we offer 
the DARE program, in cooperation with the Wilmington Police Department and 
Officer Robert Spencer. These programs emphasize the importance of 
drug/alcohol education through the teaching of self-esteem, responsibility and 
decision making. 

The Physical Education Department cited several students for outstanding 
achievement in physical education: 

1991 Joanna Hayes Richard Barletta 

1992 Leanne McConologue Derek Stokes 

1993 Keri Bowlby Jason Early 

1994 Susan Errico Bryan McFeeters

READING/LANGUAGE ARTS DEPARTMENT 
Brenda Horan, Director 

READING BASAL ADOPTED 

The Wilmington School Committee unanimously voted to adopt the Silver-Burdett 
1991 World of Reading, Sterling Edition as Wilmington's K-6 reading series. 
The basal reader adoption committee composed of elementary classroom teachers, 
reading specialists, parents and administrators, is to be commended for their 
time and effort served on this committee. Grades K, 1, and 2 began the school 
year implementing the new series. 

The CHAPTER I READING PARENT ADVISORY COUNCIL held three general meetings. An 
informational meeting was held in the Fall. A "WINNER FAMILY NIGHT" was 
initiated with guest speaker Brendon Walsh who spoke to parents on the value 
of reading aloud to their children. Chapter I students, with their brothers 
and sisters, attended a puppetry workshop. The evening was concluded with an 
Ice Cream Smorgasbord. In the Spring an end of the year family night was 
held. Norm Bossio addressed the parents on "How to Burn the Candle at Both 
Ends and Not Burn Out." Chapter I students and their siblings heard and 
interacted with illustrator and author Michael Glaser on the Creatures of the 
Sea Shore. Each child received an autographed copy of his latest book. 
"Author Teas" were held at each Chapter I school and ribbons were rewarded for 
excellent poetry, plays and stories written by each student. The PAC officers 
for the 1990-1991 year were: 



Pat Fenton Chairperson 

Patricia Parker Vice-Chairperson 

Anne Fisher Secretary 

Anne Burns Comptroller

Wilmington grade 5 through 7 students again participated in Lowell Sun 
Spelling Bee. Finalists participated in the area competition held at the

The TENTH ANNUAL SUMMER READING PROGRAM which is a cooperative effort between 
the Wilmington Memorial Library under the supervision of Mrs. Sara Ruetor and 
the Wilmington Reading Department was held. This program encourages summer 
reading and visits to the public library. This year's theme was FUNNY SUMMER. 
The many activities held at the library were very well attended. High 
circulation of books during the summer months also indicated that many 
children were reading during the summer vacation.

SPECIAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT 
Cleo N. Fredette, Jr., Director 

During the last calendar year the Special Education Department received 185 
referrals for initial TEAM evaluations and provided special education and 
related treatment services to approximately 500 special needs' students ages 
3-22. 

The department continued to review its policies and practices relative to the 
least restrictive programming and mainstreaming of special needs' students in 
the school department. To that end the department, along with each of the six 
principals, applied for and was awarded a federal grant to promote further 
mainstreeuning activities in the Wilmington Public Schools. The grant entitled 
"Enhanced Mainstreaming Opportunities" seeks to employ the methodology of 
cooperative teaching between regular classroom teachers and special education 
teachers. The grant is both a planning and an implementation grant. It 
provides monies to teachers at all six schools to conduct after school 
planning and communication necessary to implement the goals of this project. 
Planning activities are currently taking place at all Wilmington schools with 
scheduled pilot implementation to take place in the spring. The specific 
focus is on students who attend resource rooms. The goal is to curtail 
takeout services in the resource room and to have regular and special 
education teachers collaboratively working in the classroom to instruct all 
students in the class, those with special needs and those without. It is 
anticipated that the curriculum expertise of regular education teachers will 
blend harmoniously with the special education staff's knowledge of student 
learning styles and methods of curriculum modification. The long term goal of 
this project would be to educate approximately 300 of Wilmington's special 
needs' population totally within the regular classroom thus minimizing the 
need for takeout services. This is an ambitious systemwide goal that has the 
commitment of all principals, regular education teachers and special education 
personnel . 

SCHOOL FOOD SERVICE DEPARTMENT 
Anne M. Quinn, Director 

The Wilmington School Foodservice Department has been very active and busy 
this year. Along with serving approximately 300,000 student meals and 21,000 
Senior Citizens lunches, we have been catering many activities. Our services 
have been called on to prepare, serve or supervise the National Honor Society 
Banquet, PAC Spaghetti Suppers and Breakfasts, Rotary Thanksgiving Breakfast, 
School/Business Partnership Breakfast, and many Coffee Hours and Meetings. 

The Senior Citizen Lunch Program both in-school and Meals-On-Wheels has 
continued to run well this year. It's nice to see new faces and continue to 
welcome our standbys. 

We have become involved with the pre-school and extended daycare programs, 
ordering and providing food and supplies for both programs. 

The staff has had an opportunity to participate in training programs presented 
by the Massachusetts School Foodservice Association and the Bureau of School 
Nutrition Services, Department of Education. 



We have also participated in Framingheun State College's graduate Nutrition AP4 
Program by having an intern train with us this year. 

We are hoping for increased student lunch participation. The school 
Foodservice Department is self-supporting and it is extremely difficult in 
this era of rising prices to continue to be self-supporting. We are being 
careful with food and supplies to conserve as much as possible. 



-89- 



We have implemented as many suggestions as possible and continue to seek-out 
new ideas and possibilities to improve Food Service and always have an up- 
beat, current program for the students and other participants. 



PERSONNEL 

The Wilmington School community wishes the following employees who have 
retired from the Wilmington Public Schools this year many happy and healthful 
years. They include: 

Miss Mildred Woods, Administrative Assistant and School Committee Clerk 
Miss Georgia Dadoly, Science Teacher, Wilmington High School 
Mr. Alfred Hambelton, Industrial Arts Department Chairman, 
Wilmington High School 

The Wilmington School Committee wishes to thank former member, Mr. Robert 
Surran, who concluded his term in office this past year. 

In conclusion, we would like to take this opportunity to extend our 
appreciation to the administrators, teachers, parents, and students who 
contributed their efforts to the Wilmington Public Schools during the 1991 
school year. A special note of thanks to the many Town departments that 
cooperated with the school system in 1991. 

Shawsheen Valley Regional 
Vocational Technical School 

Elected representatives of the Regional School Committee are: Anthony R. 
Mazzone and Mark Trifiro from Bedford; Kenneth L. Buffum, Chairman, and 
Bernard Hoar, Secretary, from Billerica; John P. Miller, Treasurer, and Alfred 
Verrier from Burlington; Richard E. Griffin and J. Peter Downing from 
Tewksbury; and John Gillis, Vice Chairman, and Michael Smith from Wilmington. 

Kevin J. Sowydra, School Committee member from Wilmington, served on the 
School Committee for six years. Mr. Sowyrda was replaced by Mr. Smith in 
Wilmington's Annual Town election. Twice elected Vice Chairman by his 
colleagues, the District, students, and staff gratefully appreciate the 
significant contributions exhibited by Mr. Sowyrda. 

As one of twenty-five regional vocational technical school districts in the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Shawsheen Valley Technical continues to offer 
comprehensive vocational/technical education for approximately eleven hundred 
high school students. Over one hundred adults received full-time specific 
skill training; over five hundred adults participated in the Adult Education 
program; and over two hundred junior high school students participated in the 
after school Career Education program. 

Upon graduation, full-time students receive both a comprehensive academic high 
school diploma and a competency certification in their chosen technical 
discipline. Over ninety-four percent of the June 1991 graduates either 
acquired jobs within their skilled professions or pursued higher education at 
various colleges. Despite the loss of over 3,000,000 jobs during the past two 
years in Massachusetts, Shawsheen 's actual placement rate of 82% of graduates 
in jobs represents a tremendous accomplishment. Shawsheen Valley Technical 's 
graduation placement statistics were the highest among the state's Regional 
Vocational Technical High Schools. 



-90- 



The New England Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges accepted without 
change Shawsheen Valley Technical 's five year progress report at its annual 
November meeting. Shawsheen received a ten year original accreditation in 
November 1987, and within two years implemented ninety-six percent of the 
recommendations on the on-site visiting team. The completion of many of the 
objectives was made possible by a bond issue which enabled Shawsheen Valley to 
complete a major renovation to the facility as well as updating equipment. Of 
equal note was the establishment of dynamic and active staff Curriculum 
Council which meets twice a month to evaluate issues relevant to improvements 
in the curriculum. 

The School Committee applauds the continued contributions of the three hundred 
area businessmen who serve on Shawsheen Valley Technical 's Advisory 
Committees. Advisory committee members monitor each program to guarantee 
curriculum and equipment are up to date, thus insuring that graduating 
students meet the needs of local businesses. 

Many activities took place during 1991 which deserve special recognition: 

* Shawsheen completed a major $2.7 million renovation project on its 
facilities, and completely modernized its equipment needs in nineteen 
vocational/technical programs. In 1988 the five member towns approved this 
comprehensive bond issue, and Shawsheen Valley qualified and received state 
reimbursement of over 70% for this important project. 

* Shawsheen Technical received a federal grant to initiate a full-time 
Medical Secretarial Program training adults in medical terminology, 
anatomy, medical transcription, and insurance coding. Over 42 full-time 
adults participated, and over 80% of the graduates filled positions in area 
hospitals. The program was expanded to include medical coding, and job 
articulation agreements were initiated with six local hospitals. 

* Shawsheen was one of three schools in Massachusetts selected to participate 
in an Applied Biology/Chemistry program. Shawsheen is field testing 
science modules with fifteen states coordinated by Baylor University in 
Texas. Students are being trained to connect science principles with the 
environment and every day applications. 

* Cape Kennedy Space Center in Florida allowed science students to apply 
applications with real space learning activities through a satellite dish 
computer network. The computer network allowed students to work on solving 
course coordinate details and evaluating weather conditions during a recent 
space flight. 

* In cooperation with the Middlesex County Sheriff's Department, over thirty- 
five percent of the classrooms and corridors throughout the school were 
painted by inmates from the Billerica House of Correction during August of 
1991. The School Committee presented Sheriff John McGonigle's office a 
hand-crafted clock completed by carpentry students at the November Advisory 
Meeting acknowledging the importance of this unique, cost effective 
program. 

* Over two hundred and fifty students participated in the Vocational 
Industrial Clubs of America yearly district, state, and national 
competitions. Five health students: Christine Ccimpbell, Dawneen Carrol, 
Rachael Dooley, Danielle Gormley, and Christine Stevens; combined to win 
the national gold medal in the Health Knowledge Bowl. Other national 
competitors included: Melissa Maclnnis in Medical Assistance; Lisa 
Matthews in Machine Drafting; and Christine Doherty and Jennifer Riessle in 
Technical Illustration. 

* The District received national accreditation as an "Automotive Center of 
Excellence" in cooperation with the New England Association of Automotive 
Warehouse Distributors. The District completely modernized its automotive 



-91- 



department consistent with NATEF specification, and received a $30,000 
grant from the Massachusetts Department of Occupational Education to assist 
in accomplishing this objective. 

* Each year Shawsheen Valley Technical builds one complete home in one of the 
member towns. The homeowner is selected by lottery at an April School 
Committee meeting. An eleven room garrison colonial home in Billerica was 
completed. Construction cluster students also constructed a block building 
at an athletic field in Tewksbury, completed an elaborate handicapped 
access rsunp at the Tewksbury Town Hall, constructed a sign sponsored by the 
Son's of Italy at the Wilmington Wildcat stadium, and completed many other 
projects for member communities. 

* The Graphic Arts department printed thousands of pamphlets, letters, and 
reports for member towns, school districts, and non profit organizations. 
Maria Torre, a twelfth grade graphic artist, won the prestigious "Gutenberg 
Award" for her design and printing excellence in four color process of the 
cover of the Billerica Plan document. 

* Over three hundred students participated in the various interscholastic 
athletic progreuns offered by the school district. 1991 League 
Championships were generated in Soccer, Football, Cheerleading, Boys 
Basketball, and Ice Hockey. 

The aforementioned highlights are documented as a snapshot of the dynamic 
programs offered to member communities by the imaginative professional staff 
employed at Shawsheen Valley Technical. Viewed by state-wide educators as one 
of the most comprehensive vocational technical secondary schools in the 
Commonwealth, the elected School Committee members remain committed to 
adequately prepare area youth for excellent employment opportunities for the 
twenty-first century. 

Prospective students and residents are urged to contact the school's Guidance 
Department at (508) 667-2111 for additional information regarding the various 
career programs offered to area residents. 

The District's continued success is a direct result of the support received 
from Town Administrators, Boards of Selectmen, Finance Committees, and 
citizens. We very much appreciate their cooperation and support.

TOWN OF WILMINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS 



NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 
June 30, 1991 
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies 

The accounting policies for financial reporting purposes of the Town of 
Wilmington conform to generally accepted accounting principles for local 
governmental units except as indicated in Note 2. The following is a 
summary of the significant accounting policies: 

A. Fund Accounting 

The town reports its financial activities in several funds and one 
account group in order to comply with the limitations and restrictions 
placed on both the resources made available to the town and the 
services provided. The various funds are grouped in the financial 
statements in this report into five generic fund types and two broad 
fund categories as follows: 

GOVERNMENTAL FUNDS 

General Fund - The general fund is the general operating fund of the 

town. It is used to account for all financial resources except those 
required to be accounted for in another fund. 

Special Revenue Fund - This special revenue fund is used to account 

for the proceeds of the State and Local Fiscal Assistance Act and 

their expenditures as prescribed by the Office of Revenue Sharing. 

Special Revenue Funds - Others - This special revenue fund is used to 
account for the proceeds of specific revenue resources (other than 
general revenue sharing, expendable trust or major capital projects) 
that are legally restricted to expenditures for specific purposes. 

Capital Projects Fund - This fund is used to account for the purchase 
or construction of major capital facilities. 

FIDUCIARY FUNDS 

Trust and Agency Funds - Trust and agency funds are used to account 
for assets by the town in a trustee capacity or as an agent for 
individuals, private organizations, other governments and/or other 
funds. These include expendable trust, non-expendable trust and 
agency funds. Non-expendable trust funds are accounted for in a 
manner that permits the periodic measurement of revenues earned, 
expenses incurred and/or net income in order to demonstrate 
maintenance of capital. Expendable trust funds are accounted for in 
essentially the Scune manner as governmental funds. Agency funds are 
custodial in nature (assets equal liabilities) and do not involve 
measurement of results of operations. 

ACCOUNT GROUP 

Long-Te rm Debt and Liabilities - Long-term liabilities expected to be 
financed from governmental funds are accumulated in the general long- 
term debt group of accounts. This account group is not a fund. It is 
only concerned with the measurement of financial position and, 
therefore, is not involved with a measurement of the results from any 
operations. 



-130- 



B. Basis of Accounting 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared principally 
on the modified accrual basis of accounting. This method recognizes 
revenues when they become measurable and available. Expenses are 
recognized under this method as they are incurred. 

Revenue Recognition - Property tax revenues are recognized when they 
become available. Available means then due or past due and receivable 
within the current period or expected to be collected soon enough 
thereafter to be used to pay liabilities of the current period. 

All other revenues are recognized throughout the year when cash is 
received. Receipts during the sixty days immediately following the 
close of the fiscal year are also recognized as available revenue. 

In applying the susceptible to accrual concept to intergovernmental 
revenues, the legal and contractual requirements of the numerous 
individual programs are used as guidance. There are, however, 
essentially two types of these revenues. In one, monies must be 
expended on the specific purpose or project before any sumounts will be 
paid to the town, therefore, revenues are recognized based upon the 
expenditures recorded. In the other, monies are virtually 
unrestricted as to purpose of expenditure and are usually revocable 
only for failure to comply with prescribed compliance requirements. 
These resources are reflected as revenues at the time of receipt or 
earlier if the susceptible to accrual criteria is met. 

Expenses - Expenditures are recorded during the year on a cash 
disbursement basis. In addition, as required by Massachusetts General 
Laws, disbursements made during the fifteen days immediately following 
the close of each fiscal year and which pertain to the prior year are 
recorded as warrants payable and expenses as of June 30th. 

Purchase orders outstanding at June 30th related to annual operating 
expenses are recorded as encumbrances and, accordingly, as a 
reservation of fund balances at that date. 

Deferred Revenue - Property taxes and other revenues that are 
measurable but not available have been classified as deferred revenue 
on June 30, 1991. 

2 . Departures from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles 

For years prior to 1985, the town presented its financial statements on the basis 
of accounting practices prescribed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 
Department of Revenue. These practices differed in many significant respects 
from G.A.A.P. 

During 1981, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts issued a revised uniform municipal 
accounting system entitled "U.M.A.S." The departures from G.A.A.P. under this 
revised system have been significantly narrowed. The town has adopted a modified 
U.M.A.S. for its financial statement presentation for 1985. 

The significant departures from G.A.A.P. included in the Town of 
Wilmington's financial statements are: 

a. Retirement benefits are provided for an a "pay-as-you-go" basis 
rather than an acceptable actuarial cost methods (see note 5). 

b. General fixed asset acquisitions are recorded as expenditures at the 
time purchases are made rather than being capitalized in a general 
fixed asset group of accounts.

Let us contemplate our forefathers and posterity and resolve

for the sake of the latter. 



Samuel Adams 



'BILL of RIGHTS' 



The first ten amendments to the Constitution, known as the "Bill of Rights", contain 
nearly all the guarantees of personal liberties embodied in the Constitution. 

So jealous were our forefathers of the rights of American citizens and so sure did 
they want to be that none of them would be invaded that, in order to "make sure doubly 
sure", soon after the adoption of the Constitution ten amendments safeguarding these 
rights were submitted to the people and adopted as promptly as possible. 

These amendments-this "Bill of Rights"-are a summary of the long struggle of mankind 
for personal liberty and religious freedom. 

They were intended to set at ease the minds of citizens who knew of the age-old sins 
of government. They were a kind of "safety first" precaution in connection with the new 
government which the Constitution created.
